*Club Address from the newly elected Chairman of the Board
It is with great pleasure that I have been accepted at our AGM on Wednesday the 19th November, as the incoming Chairman of the Board of the Montrose Football Club. As a past President, Secretary, Committee member and Player I am really proud to once again represent our Club.
It is great to be finally back “home” with Montrose after 30 years since leaving the Club to work overseas in 1984. Since my return to Melbourne I have been fortunate to have been involved in local football for 25 of those years (Auskick, Junior Football at East Ringwood FC and Senior Football at Surrey Park FC).
Since my return in 2014, my observations over the last year at Montrose have been that we are a fortunate Club, that has great facilities but more importantly, great people. This was personally demonstrated to me with the large number of people who got involved and made our 2014 International Cup event so successful on so many fronts. This was an event that will be remembered and talked about by lots of people both from within our Club and the local football fraternity, but just as importantly our overseas visitors and their officials.
Our Board and Committees have served the Club well in the past, resulting in our elevation in 2014 into the EFL First Division. The performance by all sides, particularly our Senior Team finishing 3rd on the Ladder, was an excellent start for a new First Division Club. This was capped off by Andrew Haining winning the EFL Senior B & F and Michael “Barney” Edwards winning the EFL Reserves B & F. A great year by the Coaches led by Brett Johnson and our off field team led by Terry Dean.
I would sincerely thank the retiring Board and Committee Members that have devoted so much of their time and expertise in the development of our Club so that it is equipped to compete in the highest level of the Eastern Football League.
From the new Board of Management’s perspective, we need to deliver on the importance of “One Club” – not just as a nice tag line, but also as a mantra to drive our Club to sustainable success.
We must be committed to review and revise our management processes, to seek andappoint competent and trustworthy people to administer our Club. In concert with the Eastern Football League, our wonderful Sponsor Partners, our Senior and Junior Members and Players be supportive, of the Community we live in and uphold the high Community standards expected of us.
We must all understand andpromote the values of our family based One Club.
This can be achieved by the continual recruitment of good people and the transitioning of skills and experience from Committee & Board incumbents to people transitioning through our Junior and Senior Committees. The continuing progress of our Club to attain 'sustainable success' is up to EVERY Member of our Club - not just a few elected officials.
There are many challenges for us in the future, however, I am confident the Board will deliver the leadership and management skills to Montrose Football Club to ensure our continued success both on and off the field and as such, I seek the support of all members for myself and my fellow Board members.
If we do this as One Club, we can look forward to another successful year in 2015.
Chairman, Montrose Football Club
